Rocky Horror Showcreator Richard O'Brien caught a hot dog at the Broadway revival's opening night party Nov. 15. O'Brien, aside from writing the show, also played Riff Raff in the cult film version. Raul Esparza currently plays the role on Broadway.
Rocky Horror Show first opened on Broadway in 1975, the same year the film appeared, cementing the show's fate as a cult classic. The Circle in the Square revival of Richard O'Brien's rock musical about two virginal kids who stumble onto a very spooky house and its very strange inhabitants stars Dick Cavett, Lea DeLaria, Joan Jett, Jarrod Emick, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Alice Ripley and Tom Hewitt.
